FrOM THE PrESIDENT OF AJINOMOTO CO., INC.

“As the world celebrates the 110th anniversary of the discovery of umami, Ajinomoto Co., Inc. – the world’s first and leading manufacturer of MSG – is excited to continue to bring delicious flavor to global cuisines. The new seasoning, MSG, the purest form of umami, was introduced to the U.S. market in 1917 with a vision of a new way to bring taste to everyone’s kitchen. Through the continued research efforts in last few decades, umami is recognized as a basic taste perception, much like the classic four basic tastes: sweet, salty, sour and bitter. By bringing together a diverse blend of experts, we hope to deepen the understanding for umami and its essential role in American cuisines.”
